Astronomy can be amplified for you if you like this science, observing the Moon through a telescope. What you see in magazines, internet, documentaries, is not like what you see when you put your eye to the eyepiece of the telescope.
With a medium telescope like mine, I enjoy here the observation of south pole of the Moon, a place of many craters. You can not reach this place but only with a powerful aircraft to get you there, and a suitable cosrum to survive. But it is still difficult to land on such rugged area, and thats why you can not find in the history of flight to the Moon, missions that have been carried out on its south pole.
We notice here two notable craters: Mutus and Nearch.
